In Appreciation of Kerry Quinn
It’s with both sadness and fondness that we say goodbye
to Kerry Quinn.
Kerry has been CRC’s Director of Client Services for many
years, and has gently guided hundreds of individuals in our community through cancer diagnosis, treatment, and recovery.
Her wisdom, compassion and kindness made cancer a more manageable experience for everyone she touched.
When she began here, we had one small support group.
Today, we have eight thriving groups – an unheard of number
for a city this size. Each group reflects Kerry’s passion for
creating community and for bringing survivors together.
Kerry, more than anyone, is responsible for creating CRC’s client service programs.
It’s the very heart of what we do.
We love you, Kerry.
To the CRC Community,
I have resigned from CRC to spend more time with family and do some new things too..! It has been an honor to serve and walk beside so many friends…and heroes. I have had the opportunity to create and contribute to programs that will all continue to grow and flourish with the wonderful community of CRC. I am sending best hugs and wishes to all and thanks for the friendship and love through all these years. I count all of you as blessings! XO, Kerry

Families Enjoy Kids, Clowns & S’mores Event
On Sept. 25th, Anna Banana & Crossroads the Clown, entertained families at CRC’s inaugural Kids, Clowns & S’mores event. Families were invited to our recently transformed garden area
for fun, games, and s’mores around a campfire. The clowns were the highlight of the evening, as they mesmerized both children and adults alike. CRC invited families who have a parent or other caretaker with cancer for a night of fun and to learn about the supportive services & resources of our center.
This is the first of many future activities that are part of our new program, “CRC Cares About Kids,” funded by a small grant from the Community Foundation of Tompkins County.
To help us plan future events, please take 5 minutes to print & complete this survey seeking feedback from parents with cancer (and other caregivers of children) on how we can best help and support you & your families.
A big thank you goes out to all the interns, client services committee volunteers, and staff
who assisted with the event, especially Fran Spadafora Manzella for organizing it, and Jo Ellen Hedlund and Lisa LiVigne (CRC Board members and co-chairs of the event.)
Thank you to our generous community of fundraisers:
